This song is from the Chieftains album "The Long Black Veil" but this

C G C Am F/G C FWhen first I came to Ireland some pleasure for to find
C G/B Am Em C FIt's there I spied a damsel fair, most pleasing to my mind
C G/B Am Em C F Her rosy cheeks and sparkling eyes like arrows pierced my breast
C G C Am F/G Csus CAnd I call her lovely Molly O', the lily of the west
C G C Am F/G C FOne day as I was walking down by a shady grove
C G/B Am Em C FI spied a lord of high degree conversing with my love
C G/B Am Em C F As she sang her song delightfully while I was sore oppressed
C G C Am F/G Csus CSaying I bid adieu to Molly O', the lily of the west
Well, I stepped up with my rapier and my dagger in my hand And I dragged him from my false love and boldly I bid him stand But being mad with desperation I swore I'd pierce his breast I was then deceived by Molly O', the lily of the west I then did stand stand my trial, and boldly I did plead A flaw was in my indictment found and that soon had me freed That beauty bright I did adore, the judge did her address Now go, you faithless Molly O', the lily of the west Now that I've gained my liberty a-rovin' I will go I ramble through old Ireland and travel Scotland o'er Though she thought to swear my life away she still disturbs my rest, I still must style her, Molly O', the lily of the west.
